This is their first baby, and I was thrilled to make it in time to hang out in the waiting room with my sister, the aunts, and poor old Dad (who was vastly outnumbered by womenfolk). We played Uno, ate junkfood, and as delirium set in, we harassed Czarina’s baby doll. She was not amused. (the doll or Czarina.)
